1st Christmas mani for the month

I couldn’t come up with a fancy tittle for this one so I’m calling it what it is. Nothing hard on my part was done to do this mani. I used purple for my background which is not a traditional Christmas color and used water nail art stickers I bought from either Amazon.com or Banggood.com. I added gold starts and I think it just makes it pop. I love how the purple turned out with the green and white stickers. I was about to give up on this as the stickers kept not being flimsy for me to put on my nails and I could not figure out why. Turns out I was not taking the plastic cover off before placing the sticker in the water.  Plan on seeing more of these type of manis to come in the future as this was super easy! xmas 2014

It seems my daughter got in the mood to do some nail art of her own. Am I the only mom that gets squeemish when their kids say they want to use their polish? She came up with this idea all on her own and I am a pretty proud mamma.

Tartan Nail art

My fashion mani  for OMD2 was supposed to be tartan print. It did not turn out so well.  I used all nail polish and feel as if it would have turned out better if I used  all acrylic paint for the lines  or just my lack of skill.

Nail-Art-A-Go-Go : Monochrome

Not sure if I channeled this one correctly ,but I tried my best with my being tired from being work for 11 hours and the horrible snow storm. Nothing special or fancy just a black white and plaid mani.

I had so many ideas for this mani, but I had to go on my art level, which is next to none and I promised myself as a resolution I would not post anything that I was not proud of .

Black white and red mani

This was supposed to be a funky present mani with ribbon going diagonally across with a red bow. The bow did not turn out so hot so I just took a picture of what the nails looked like before I took it off and painted something else.

Side note look at these cute brushes that I bought that are the color of the rainbow. Still a brush newbie and will have to work with how to use them all. Does anyone know a good tutorial from one stroke?

OMD 31 day nail art challenge Day 12- Dots

Sorry for posting so late today. I went tubing this morning! It was a leisurely float down the Delaware River for 4 hours.

So one of my co-works had her nails done  this week by a professional. I liked it so much that I took a picture and told her I wanted to recreate it. The only difference is I did dots on my nails that did not have a butterfly on it and she had her non accent nails in a French mani. I’m really happy how this turned out.

I will be cramming nail art in the next few days as I will be going on vacation to AC Sunday-Wednesday. I could bring nail polish on my trip( Did it before), but I don’t know what colors I want to use yet.
